Time to Return to Ostagar

The much anticipated and very much delayed DLC for Dragon Age: Origins has finally been released! I can’t give an opinion on it just yet as I’m playing this game on my PS3 instead of the Xbox. But I’ll be sure to download it and play the minute it’s available.

Return to Ostagar is still coming

Dragon Age’s Ostagar DLC Coming (Again) Soon

Gaming sites report that the very much delayed DLC for Dragon Age, Return to Ostagar may be released soon. After the embarrassment  early this year with the DLC as well as the day 1 errors for the Mass Effect 2 DLC, Bioware is taking great care now with their releases.

I just wonder if it will actually come out before Awakenings. Maybe Awakenings itself maybe be delayed as well. But as long as they release it working. I don’t think gamers would mind waiting. We’ve already waited this long.

DLC Returned to Bioware

Dragon Age Return To Ostagar DLC Now Unavailable – Dragon age: origins – Kotaku

According to reports posted on Kotaku.com, the delayed DLC for Dragon Age: Origins “Return to Ostagar” was available on the Xbox Marketplace for a while before it was pulled out due to bug with specialization skills.

Returned!?!? You can imagine what went down at the forums after this announcement.

Then let the chaos begin.

I’m actually losing hope that the Awakening expansion will out on time in April if they can’t get this 1 hour DLC off the ground, what more with 15 hours in Awakening. They may be able to get my faith back if they are able to make one of these “announced” release dates true. In the meantime, Bayonetta, you have all of my time until White Knight Chronicles and Final Fantasy 13 till then.

Delayed Return to Ostagar

Dragon Age: Origins Won’t Return To Ostagar On Time – Dragon age: origins – Kotaku

If you’ve been clicking the refresh button on the Playstation Store, Xbox Marketplace and Bioware website for the past few hours in hopes of getting the new DLC for Dragon Age then you’re out of luck. Bioware has announced that the Return to Ostagar has been delayed for all platforms and no new announcement on when this will be available.

This sucks. I’ve been looking forward to the expansion. I’ve even leveled up a new character to just before the landsmeet. I should have known better than trust release dates from gaming companies. But I’ll get really pissed if they’re going to make me until March for the DLC. We’ll be watching you Bioware. Always watching. Replies to the announcement are rather interesting. Here’s some of them.

And to top it off…

The forum has grown to over 80 pages in just a matter of hours. I wonder how long this is going to last.

Rumor: Dragon Age major update in March

Both Kotaku and 1UP.com are reporting that 2009 RPG of the Year Dragon Age will be getting a huge expansion in March. Currently listed as Dragon Age: Awakening. According to the report, the expansion will take place after the storyline of DAO and will introduce a new character and a new origin story. Unlike the current available expansions, this one is said to clock in at 15 hours of gameplay.

Then there’s the cost. The rumored street price between $30-40 USD for the PC version with a more expensive Xbox version. No PS3 version was mentioned.

CO-OP episode 0305 mentioned that Bioware has prepared 2 years of DLC on Bioware to keep fans busy over the next few months.

These DLCs have been quite controversial with gamers. EA reports $1 Million in DLC sales for Dragon Age. This is interesting since almost all of the DLCs were given away for free with the exception of “Warden’s Keep”. The mainreason why this DLC has been downloaded so many times is the fact that after completing the quest, you gain access to a party chest where you can store an unlimited number of items. In my first playthrough, I was selling a lot of items and destroying a lot as well since there was a 120 item limit to your inventory. This expansion then became a necessity to play the game.

But the cost is something for some gamers to take pause before buying this for an additional 15 hours more gameplay. Unless of course you’re as addicted as me. But if the rumors are to be believed, does it mean that I have to create a new character just for this expansion? I can’t bring my über character that I built with all the armor and weapons that I’ve accumulated? That would really suck for me. But there’s no mention yet on what happens to your companions.

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

Maybe Bioware will apply the same mechanics they’re doing with Mass Effect 2, where your choices affect the events of the next game. To put it simply, your choices determine if Commander Shepard continues on the next game. If you’re moving through Dragon Age at a good pace, you know that certain dialogue choices can make you lose certain party members.

END SPOILER ALERT

Bioware has laid down the foundation for a very expansive RPG series. There are some elements that will remind you of Dragonlance and Lord of the Rings but will still maintain a certain uniqueness to it. I am pretty sure that we will be able to explore the entire world of Thedas in the years to come.
